e& UAE taps Nokia to enhance hyperscaler connectivity service offering

April 30, 2024
With its new cloud interconnect service layer, the provider aim to provide a seamless and enhanced experience tailored specifically to the needs of hyperscalers.

e& UAE, the dominant service provider in the United Arab Emirates, is leveraging Nokia’s cloud interconnect solution to provide connectivity services for hyperscalers in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). 

Using Nokia’s FP5-based technology, e& UAE can offer significantly high-quality connectivity to hyperscalers and support mission-critical applications delivered across evolved business-class services. 

Driven by the rapid growth of cloud services, e& UAE is evolving its network to streamline its current architecture. By seamlessly connecting to leading cloud service providers, e& UAE customers will enjoy the benefits of decreased latency for response times, uninterrupted connectivity, and easy access to cutting-edge applications.

Nokia’s cloud interconnect solution optimizes and strengthens network performance within hyperscale environments. It addresses critical connectivity challenges, ensuring efficient routing, traffic management, network security, and resource allocation to meet the specific demands of hyperscalers.

A key element of Nokia’s platform is that its FP5-based platforms are terabit-class routers that deliver high performance, capacity, and security for cloud-scale networks. Additionally, Nokia's ANYsec technology provides end-to-end encryption and authentication for all data traffic across the network, ensuring data privacy and integrity.

“This collaboration allows frictionless access to innovative applications that enhance the user experience,” said Khaled Al Suwaidi, SVP of core networks and platforms at e& UAE. “It supports e& UAE’s objective of optimizing our current network architecture to seamlessly integrate with public clouds while ensuring the highest levels of security and reliability for our customers.”
